Wacko Rules
18 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Move over Star Wars, Wacko is the greatest movie of all time. This movie has it all … from lawnmowers to carrots you don't want to miss Wacko. If you do you are an idiot! Andrew Dice Clay gives a balanced, poignant performance as Tony Schlongini (hey lets all sing along: "Tony Schlongini I am respected everywhere ... Tony Schlongini ... you know how it goes). Jon Don Baker as Dick Harbinger could go down as the greatest hero since Jesus. While some movies are afraid to push the envelope of brilliance (I'm looking at you Godfather!!!) Wacko takes the horror genre to places not scene in Hollywood. Oh by the way I love black women.
